Is there an Ohio loli group or anything? I don't recall the LJ group search being so shitty, alas I cannot find anything...
I'm in Columbus/Upper Arlington, I just moved here (I have mentioned before that I lived in Colorado... uh, obviously that's changed now!), so I command any lolis that live nearby be my friend!
This is just a little mental babble I had before I fell asleep last night about the lifestyle side of things.
For many people being lolita means being child like. Innocent. It's even a hard clad Rule for some people.
Now even these people accept that being Maiden like is a good bet for older lolis. It still seems to be attached to the innocense though. A purity of self that I was definetely attached to in my earlier days as a loli. As childlike was creepy for being nearly six foot and 20 years old already.
But now, at 25, I find myself kinda growing away from both of those terms. I'm hardly childlike, and calling myself a maiden is starting to make me snicker. I mean if you're old enough to have changed some of the younger loli's Diapers...
I am Still very attached to lolita. So I thought, why do we have to be constrainded to the youth ideal? Can't lolitas be Ladies as well as? Does lolita, as a group conciousness not as individual people, have to be constrained to the younger set?
One person told me childlike wasn't really a discription of lolita but Playful was. I think women can be playful throughout their lives. Find joy in beautiful things and be charming even at 90 years old.
Without being some creepy person pretending to be 30 years younger than they actually are...
p.s. if I've offended anyone. Please refer to the icon. XD
question plz about brand petticoats.
Does anyone know how big both BTSSB and Meta's petticoats go in the waist?
I think I should get one for prom 'cause my dress is being made of brocade, which may be too heavy for my ITS poof petticoat.
If I think they'll fit I'll be hosting a group order. =)
According to the Baby website, the Yokohama store will have a sample sale on the 25-27th. I'm wanting some clarification, if anyone is more familiar with these things:
A sample sale is where they sell the items used for display/modeling at discounted rates because they are basically "used", right? Or is this something different....?
Anyone have any idea what they mean by "B" selection? That's throwing me. o_o
And while I'm ruminating about Baby news, are they trying to tell me there'll be a drawing at the Takasaki store, if you spend more than 10000 then you get a chance at one of the 5 presents?
.... ;_; Confirm? Deny? Condemn??? *suffering from MY JAPANESE IS TERRIBLE ONOS*
Just for fun:
Let's pretend that you are off to Japan. You have $600 USD to spend. You can visit any brand which has stores in Tokyo.
What do you buy?
(Links, plz ;) ).
[Whilst this is mostly hypothetical fantasy, I'm also curious to see what you'd spend the money on if you were there, as I am off in two weeks, and looking for suggestions ;) I find I miss a lot of awesome things, when browsing brand websites.]
I know this has been discussed here before, I looked on LJseek and couldnt find it though. How does one refer to lolita, when trying to tell someone who doesnt know what is about it? I cant say "I like Lolita", because then people will think I'm a pedophile. I dont want to say "I like gothic lolita" either, cause then I feel like I'm giving the impression that I only like gothic style(actually, gothic is my least favorite) or I could be some creepy fetish person. Same thing can go for referring to it by any other style (Classic, Sweet). Someone can get the wrong idea and think I'm a pervert... Is there anyway I can avoid misconceptions?
